Corruption is Deadly billboard in Africa
BERLIN, Germany (defend.ht) – In the 2012, Corruption Perceptions Index by Transparency International, Haiti did not make any gains in the fight against corruption since the 2011 report and, in fact, lost ground.
The percentage of Haitians perceiving their government to be corrupt rose 1 percent from 18 in 2011, to 19 in 2012.
Haiti still ranks 8 slots from the bottom, at 165 but nations like Venezuela, Burundi and Chad, are now sharing this space with Haiti.
In the western hemisphere, Haiti and Venezuela stand a part from other nations in being towards the bottom. This perception will most likely bear down on the Haitian government’s efforts to seek investment. Venezuela has nationalized industries and will not face that problem.
Honduras, Guyana and Nicaragua are in the 130s and Dominican Republic at 118.
